Except that keeping people out isn't the point of "No Trespassing" signs. A legal requirement of trespassing is that you have to be told that you are not allowed there. Thus if there are no signs then you cannot be prosecuted unless an authorized agent finds you in the act and requests your departure.

Verizon is most likely telling the truth in a highly deceptive way. Technically there is no throttling. There are not fucking with any packet that comes through that connection. They are not actively doing anything to inhibit the flow from Netflix. They've simply chosen to architect a bottle neck which only impacts one provider. The end result is the same but they can truthfully say they're not throttling.

The cause of the crash is fuel starvation of the engines. What killed the crew I think we will never know for sure since the black box only records a 2 hour loop. If they recover it it's going to show 2 hours of autopilot flight in a mostly straight line until the fuel ran out and the engines shut down.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

If two private parties agree via contract to not talk about something then it's a contractual issue not a constitutional issue.
